It was so much fun being apart of Alyson & Quint’s wedding day! They both have become friends and I am so excited to share a few images from their beautiful wedding at The Grand Plaza Resort on Saint Pete Beach. 🙂

Also, be sure to check out their Engagement session at Fort De Soto. They were also featured on The Lovely Find

  • How did you both meet? Café 13 night club on July 17, 2009. We both caught each others eyes while I was walking by him on the dance floor.
  • How long have you been together? We have been together 4 amazing years in July!
  • What attracted you to each other the most? Our instant connection. Quint would say my eyes, but definitely our personalities combined. The first night we met, we sat and talked the rest of the night.
  • How did he propose? Quint won a trip to Paris through his job, Verizon Wireless. We traveled there last March. The plan was to get married at the Eiffel Tower, but it didn’t go as he had planned. I sneakily looked in the safe of the hotel room and there was no ring. So, after giving him plenty of grief, he surprised me and got down on one knee in our hotel room. I was in complete shock. Stupid me! I still got engaged in Paris and was the best proposal I could ask for.
  • What was the planning process like? So far, the planning process has been a breeze. I am getting a ton accomplished ahead of time since I have school starting soon. Plus, unlike other girls, I didn’t have my dream wedding planned out in my head. I am choosing everything as I go along and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
  • Why did your venue stick out to you? We knew that we wanted to get married on the beach no matter what. Grand Plaza was the first place we saw and we didn’t even give other venues a chance! We loved it there so much! From the French doors wrapped around the whole reception area to the palm tree lined aisle, I believe it is the perfect wedding location.
  • Where are you planning on going for your honeymoon? We are going on a 7 day cruise to the Western Caribbean. I am so excited to go with Quint. He has never been on one before and I can’t wait to turn him into an addict!
  • Describe what you have envisioned for your wedding. (colors, theme, inspiration, location of church, reception, etc) Beach themed, steel drums, palm tree’s, white sand, ocean sounds, Tiffany blue & coral, tons of fun.
  • What was your favorite aspect of your engagement session? Getting married really started to sink in.
  • What did you think when you first saw your images? We were blown away, Exceeded all expectations.
  • What would you tell someone who is in the market for a wedding photographer? Choose Jonathan Fanning! J No need to look anywhere else.
  • Why did you choose Jonathan as your photographer? Jonathan photographed our friend’s wedding and we couldn’t get enough of the images of their wedding.
  • How would describe Jonathan’s customer service? Excellent. Very easy to work with and takes all the worry out of the equation.

 

Here is what Alyson & Quint had to say about me:

BEST PHOTOGRAPHER IN THE AREA. Hands down! Jonathan is so amazing!!! Our engagement photos were beautiful and my wedding pics that I have seen so far are just breathtaking!!! I had him and his assistant for 7 hours on 11/2/13. It even rained on my wedding day and he still made me feel so confident and beautiful. Words really can’t describe how great he is. If you want to have pictures that are perfect, go with him!!! I can’t thank you enough. I chose him because he photographed my friends wedding and her pictures were out of this world as well!!

THANKS JONATHAN!!”
